Its been a while since I joined in with Shays FTF gang but check out the others at http://fairybreadmusings.blogspot.com/2011/03/favourite-things-friday_11.html.
My favourite this week is Fabric Scraps!
I love my scraps, I never throw any away until I'm sure they are too small and I get so much pleasure from playing with them.
This week, they seemed to be getting a bit out of control so I thought it was time for a scrap attack.
My little bitty bits I put together into 3.5 inch squares and got quite a few more done.
I added these to my existing ones and decided to sash them with a brown from my stash. I got a lot of larger blocks together so it won't be long before there are enough of these to make a bonus quilt top.
I finished my wonky stars tops a while ago, even though it isn't quilted so I went for something different with the triangles this time. I got the idea for this from Gwen Marstons Liberated Quilting 2. I save my triangles from scraps and my binding which is why I ended up with so many. I really like the look of these blocks. I'm thinking of surrounding each one with longer strings to get those used up as well.
Lastly, I did a bit more hand sewing of hexies using my 2.5 inches scrap squares. This is my whole stack of flowers so far plus some more loose ones I've got done.
I can't believe that when I started quilting I was really tempted to chuck all these bits. They are the most fun of all in my book!
